(Thanks, BBC, for allowing me to republish it as a podcast. I’m told the WBR appears in the U.S. on WBUR and other stations in the NPR network, and in Australia on ABC Newsradio. I’m afraid I don’t know times but they’re all fine radio stations; I’d suggest listening to them 24/7.)
A Segway rider in San Francisco hit a 3-year-old girl while riding — illegally — on one of the city’s sidewalks, ABC reports. The man fled the scene (on his Segway).
The police says it expects to be able to quickly track down the suspect by contacting Segway, and obtaining a list of San Francisco Segway owners. Apparently there aren’t that many.
